ratio =


Again dividing the numerator and denominator by 8 we get


ratio =


Therefore, ratio of number of men to that of women = 7:11


(b) ratio of number of men to total number of persons =


ratio =


Dividing numerator and denominator by 4 we get


ratio =


Again dividing the numerator and denominator by 8 we get


ratio =


Therefore, ratio of number of men to total number of persons = 7:18


(c) ratio of women to the total number of persons =


ratio =


Dividing numerator and denominator by 4 we get


ratio =


Again dividing the numerator and denominator by 8 we get
